Professional Statement

Dr. Daniel Yamini grew up in Westlake Village, a northern suburb of Los Angeles. As a highly motivated and accomplished student, he was honored as the valedictorian at the top-ranked Westlake High School. That distinction, among others, earned him a scholarship to Stanford University to pursue his undergraduate education in biology and psychology. While at Stanford, Dr. Yamini focused on merging the study of human biology with adult and child psychology. In fact, Dr. Yamini was a part-time instructor at the prestigious Stanford Bing School for Children to study child behavior and development. Given his passion to understand human biology and behavior, Dr. Yamini entered medical school with the initial goals of pursuing psychiatry. However, soon after participating in surgical training, his new passion was discovered. Dr. Yamini devoted himself to mastering the art of surgery. While attending the rigorous Harbor-UCLA surgical training program, Dr. Yamini proved to be an outstanding clinician, surgeon, and scientific researcher. His six years of training afforded him command of a host of surgical disciplines, including breast, open-heart, thoracic, vascular, and oncology surgery. In addition, he developed and honed his enthusiasm for plastic surgery under the supervision of the prestigious UCLA plastic surgical faculty.
